Saturday: Calais - Honfleur, passing the 'Pont de Normandie'
On our way to Honfleur (France), where we would meet Maxime and Jerome, we had a few stops... so we could stay together without a problem. From the start on, we could enjoy the weather.... so hundred of kilometres top down driving.
The first real stop was at Honfleur, a beautifull small city with a charming harbor, where the time had stand still for several centuries
Saturday: The Hotel Montgomery at Pontorson
with a reserved 'car park'
visiting Becherel for a few minutes
Becherel is well-known for its bookshops
Maxime guided us through the ancient part of the city
4) Sunday: Vitre
Mont St. Michel
Although the day started very cloudy and a bit chilly, it all cleared up in the afternoon.
Another very charming place... don't forget to visit one of the 'Reastaurant - degustation'-places or just buy some "huitres" and eat them at the site of the road/water.
Tuesday: Bayeux with the well-known Tapestry
The first day with rain.... :-(
Pictures of a replica...
Pictures of the real stuff (without using the flash... so it doesn't harm anything/anyone)
On the way back home . . .
Taking another set of pictures
